The Squirrels, The Snails And Me

On January 5, 2012, in Travel, by ralph

My wife and I took a little trip to southern Georgia over the New Years weekend to attend a wedding. The weather was absolutely perfect during the day – 68° and sunny. I got up Saturday morning and decided to go for a run. Our hotel was right on the river walk across from the Ray Charles monument and park. It was about 8 o’clock but there wasn’t a soul on the river walk. I had it all to myself. The only thing I saw were squirrels and snails. There’s a winding paved walkway along the Flint River and I took a nice 10-mile run. The temperature at that time was in the mid-50s, which is ideal for running.

HotelAfter the run we did a little sightseeing and went to Radium Springs. It’s a pleasant spring-fed watering hole that empties into the Flint River. We attended the church wedding early that evening and ended the day at a private New Years celebration at the hotel. A good time was had by all.
